#Relocants: Surviving Minsk

Thousands of Belarusians have been forced to escape the violent regime crackdown in the wake of the August 2020 presidential election. Many of those who fled have ended up in Lithuania’s capital Vilnius, just 30 kilometres from the Belarusian border. They call themselves Relocants; their lives continue to be shaped by their shared collective trauma and the newly-forged identities as August Belarusians.
